Marshall JTM-60 combo in San Antonio for $250

This seller is offering a Marshall JTM-60 for $250 which is a very good price. These amps have a spotty repair record but he says there is "nothing wrong with it." So it may be okay.

The Marshall JTM-60 combo has a nice tone but you may not want to make it your one-and-only go to amp. They are known to blow fuses and to occasionally have volume issues based on overheating, loose output wires and a some funky effects loop wiring. Nice second amp or main amp if you have a backup.

Fender Red Knob Champ 25SE tube amp in Austin TX for $100

Note: That pic is a stock photo I found - there is no photo on this CL listing.

Hey, don't laugh... if you haven't played these amps you've missed out on a little known secret. The Fender Champ 25SE is sometimes referred to as the "Lightweight Fender Twin."

The design of this circuit is very similar to what Leo Fender was doing at MusicMan in the 1980's: solid state Preamp and two 6l6 / 5881 power tubes with a 12AX7 as the phase invertor.

There are lots of mods available to try and make the drive channel on these sound better but IMO why bother? Is there a drive channel on a Vintage Fender Twin? Of course not! Just put a Tube screamer or any other decent drive pedal into the clean channel and you will be good to go.

Very loud little amps. And at $100 you could pay more for the overdrive pedal than you do for this amp - LOL!

BAsic 25 watt Champ. Dirty channel has broken knob and clean works fine. Some knobs could use a clean they are scratchy sometimes. But good loud amp with reverb.
2x6l6 and 1 12ax7. Sounds good for a Fender.

Harmony H-162 acoustic in Van Wert, OH for $125

The guitar this seller is offering looks just like my Harmony H-162. I highly recommend this model as an "under the radar" vintage USA made acoustic. The tops are solid spruce and the sides and neck are solid mahogany (not laminated). They also have nice tortoise-shell type body binding and pickguards.

I can't vouch for the playability of this particular guitar but I just picked up my H-162 this morning and couldn't get over the nice feel and smooth tone and playability even compared to my most expensive Martin Acoustic (approx $2K).

Please be respectful of this seller if you contact him - sounds like he is going through a rough period right now.

Harmony H-54 Rocket in Forest Lake, Minnesota for $375

I see lots of nice vintage guitars for sale in Minnesota - must be some serious tone hounds in that part of the country.

Here is a seller offering a sweet Harmony H54 Rocket - the single cutaway version with mustache pickups - for $375. All that this one seems to need is a new pair of cupcake knobs. Not that hard to find.

I particularly like the fully bound neck on this Rocket. You don't see a lot of single cutaway Rockets with fully bound necks. I think that would make this either a '67 or '68.

Here's a vintage 60's Harmony Rocket H-54 serial #3959. Plays and sound great!!! Neck is straight, No fret wear, action is very comfortable.
A good single cutaway Rocket with the better 'moustache' pickups. No structural issues at all. Has the fantastic 'trestle' bracing under bridge ( like the Gretsch 6120) which reduces the feedback tendancies and improves tone. Electronics function very well. I just plugged it in today and it plays and sounds great! 651-***-**** Terry

Harmony H306A tube combo amp in Oklahoma City area for $225

This seller is offering a nice ratty looking (but great sounding) Harmony H306A for only $225. Don't expect this to be as loud as a Fender Deluxe but you will probably like the cool raunchy biting tone of this 15 watt single 12 in combo.

FYI - Personally, I wouldn't change anything cosmetic on this amp other than adding some cream colored Chickenhead knobs (which are available for super cheap on eBay). Ratty looking amps always sound better than the pretty ones IMO.

Silvertone 628 / Harmony H1200 in Memphis for $275

You don't see these guitars come up for sale very often.

Produced for only a couple of years (1954-1958) the H-1200 is one of the nicest acoustic guitars to come out of the Harmony Chicago factory. A solid spruce top and solid maple body - beautiful Rosewood fretboard (most likely Brazilian) and inlaid MOP markers and fancy acetate headstock overlay.

This probably has about the same dimensions as a modern Taylor 815 jumbo cutaway but don't expect a thin neck on this one - it was the 1950's after all - it should be nice and wide and thick - perfect for Jazz or beefy blues.

1955 Silvertone Model #628 Acoustic Guitar made by Harmony in Chicago (Harmony model #1200). Sunburst finish with single cutaway. Original tuners.

Harmony Jumbo Black Acoustic in Bentonville AK for $69

I cannot seem to identify this model Harmony Acoustic the seller is offering. It has a jumbo shape like a Sovereign but is not a 1204 or 6364 (or even a Black 162). It has the 50's-60's Harmony logo and Treble Clef and "Steel reinforced neck" but no Made in USA stamp. To make things more confusing it has what appears to be one of the wooden tailpieces Harmony only used from 1941 through 1945 and it also has a Zero Fret (WTF!??). Is this an Asian reissue?

I am totally confused. I suppose this could be a "mongrel" (i.e. a non-stock guitar from various model parts) but if anyone can help identify it please let us know. - JC

Gibson Les Paul Special w/ P90 or P100's in Little Rock AK for $400

This seller is offering a nice looking Les Paul Special for only $400. These are nice guitars (I also own one - mine is a 1996). they are a good bit lighter than a Les Paul Standard but still sound and play great. I believe that these all came with P100's but it is always possible they could be P90's in there as well.

Note: There is also a seller offering a GIBSON LES PAUL ST:UDIO (in Wine Red finish) in Little Rock for $400. Here is a link to that posting on CL. LES PAUL STUDIO $400

1950's Kay N-1 Electric archtop in Tulsa for $200 - Jack White Special

This Kay N-1 is the exact type of guitar Jack White uses on stage and in the studio (except he covers his with paper).

Jack says he covers it in paper for "personal reasons" but I am sure it is to reduce feedback from the high volumes he likes to play on stage (since this is a fully hollow guitar).

Death Letter Blues anyone..?

Reply to: [Errors when replying to ads?]

Guitar is in good condition as you can see, stays in tune and the pickup works as it should. The guitar does have some things to note. Tuners are not original, screw was added to neck, a bit of binding separation and the second to last fret will buzz if you use the lower frets past 8. If you removed the last 2 frets it would solve the buzz and since they are never used, why not. This would make a great slide guitar since the pickup works great!! Please call ***-***-****

This eBay seller made a decent video of this Kingston copy of an Eko Rokes. he has a ton of guitar videos on Youtube (his Youtube log is "DrowninginGuitars" LOL) The Original Italian made Eko's are very hard to find but the fact is they weren't the greatest sounding or playing guitars in the world (IMO some of the Japanese Copy versions of Italian Vox and Eko guitars are actually as good or better).

This guy is a pretty good player too - check him out.

Silvertone 2x12 Speaker cab in Champaing Il for $150

Looks like these guys are a vintage gear shop - hope they don't mind me listing their address here (can't imagine they would mind - free advertising).

This looks to me like one of the later "solid State" Silvertone speaker cabinets but it should still work and sound great for any Silvertone tube amp head (like a 1483 or 1485). Just be sure to check the minimum ohm ratings for a decent match.

Fender 70's Silverface Deluxe Reverb amp in Bakersfield CA for $600

These 1970's Silverface Deluxe Reverbs are great mid-sized amps. If I could only own one guitar amp and it had to serve every purpose this would be the one for me. Small enough for the apartment and they break up nicely at a reasonable volumes - but they have the nice clean Fender chime and are loud enough for small club gigs and you can mike them for bigger gigs. Add a pedal for 70's crunch.

$600 is a good price - less than what most of the Fender Reissue DRRI's go for.

Baldwin Burns Split Jazz circa 1965

This is the newest addition to my stable of guitars and I am very excited. A Burns Split Jazz labeled Baldwin from sometime around 1965. This guitar has a thick neck similar to a 1950's Strat but with a zero fret and the pickups sound better than I expected. It has a very full rich sound especially in the "Jazz" position (my favorite). The infamous "Wild Dog" setting is actually quite basic (reminds me of the out-of-phase position on my Fender Mustang).

The real treat for me is playing this guitar through my Germanium Fuzz Pedal (I use a weird homemade pedal called a "Nut Fuzz"). This guitar generates a particularly cool fuzz tone that seem to incorporate a lot of the octave and ring modulation sounds all the way up and down the neck. It has its' own unique sound and it really has a legit retro vintage vibe to it. Not really a blues guitar (I have plenty of those), the Burns makes me immdiately want to play in that mid-60's instrumental guitar style of the Shadows/ Ventures or more recently a band like the Raconteurs.

These are quite heavy guitars - at just under 10 lbs it is about the same or slightly heavier than my 1979 Ash Strat. Though it is quite comfortable to hold and play.

Note: I bought this guitar from the Guitar center in Santa Clara CA when they suddenly dropped the price.

Just thought I would share - you don't get a chance to see these too often on this side of the pond. - JC

Regal Gondola Stencil guitar in Charlotte for $75

I emailed the seller of this post and he sent me pics of the 3 guitars. One appers to be a Regal vintage parlor guitar with a nice gondola stencil in excellent shape. The Uke is a Norma which is basically a toy. But he is willing to sell the Uke and the Regal together for only $75.

These Regals are not great players but they are as good as any other ladder braced birch bodied guitar of the period. Most modern players would use these for slide or just for the joy of having a 70 year old guitar around the house LOL!

Seller is offering a nice looking Phase 4 Hi-Flyer for a decent price but what really makes the difference here is the Hipshot Piano Bridge and tailpiece.

Univox Hi-flier (phase 4) with plenty of upgrades - $400

When I bought this guitar 5 years ago everything was original. Not pristine, but original. When I first got it setup at World of Strings in Long Beach they put a shim in the neck, new tuners and upgraded the pots. Plays great. This year I replaced the bridge with the Hipshot piano bridge. Really helped to adjust intonation, plus it brought great new tone/resonance/sustain to the guitar. I also had a complete refret done on the guitar. So that's all the work that has been done. You'll never find another guitar like this. Need to find this guitar a new home in the hands of a proper rocker.

Comes with a nice gig bag with plenty of pockets for strings, picks, cables, tuner, notebooks, etc...
